8 IPL records that you may witness being snapped this season

Like all tournaments, the Indian Premier League has also seen edifice of records being constructed and collapse. Some are there, still standing towered boastfully, too lofty to be looked upon. But some are being strived and traced along. This season, some batsman, (or bowler) can blow you by a new record. Let’s have a glance at some of the records which can be snapped this season.

 

Most Dismissals by a Wicket Keeper

Current Holder: Kumar Sangakkara

The record for most dismissals by a wicket keeper is currently held by Kumar Sangakkara

The Sri Lankan has given the highest number of dismissals in a single inning when he played the Wicketkeeper from Royal Challengers Bangalore. He didn’t let the rivals hit more than 142 runs, being the protagonist by throwing 5 batsmen out singlehandedly.

Just last year, Mumbai Indians’ Parthiv Patel approached near the mark by making four dismissals from Gujarat Lions. Last season, Dhoni from Rising Pune Super Giants and Robin Uthappa of KKR have also made similar ventures.

Yusuf of KKR is accredited for hitting the half-century in the minimum balls of 15. That day, Pathan took 22 balls to make it 72 against the Hyderabad.

In the same season, i.e, 2014 Suresh Raina was on the verge of touching the line when he smashed the 50 in 16 balls.

Current Holder-Chris Gayle

The Jamaican has set up the record of 733 runs from 15 matches. This happened in 2012. Plus, Gayle has been the lone batsman in the league to bundle up the highest runs for two consecutive seasons- A year before, he had 608- And both of them remain untouched. Among those who are hovering around is Virat who batted in 8 matches to make 541 runs and David Warner, 416 runs from 9 matches.

 

Maximum consecutive 50+ scorer

Current holder: Virendra Sehwag virender-sehwag-750x500

The former cricketer has smashed 5 back to back half centuries:57, 87, 73, 63 and 73.

Ajinkya Rahane had scored six 50 plus in the IPL but the consecutive were just two. Besides, KL Rahul, had three fifties in a row but the fourth time he could hit just 35.

 

Most Catches

Current holder: Sachin Tendulkar sachin-tendulkar with Harbhajan and Ponting-750x500

The batting legend may surprise you a little by fixing a ball-catching record. But in the 2008 IPL, the master-blaster grabbed four catches to bar advances of Salman Butt, Wriddhiman Saha, Ajit Agarkar and Shoaib Akhtar that day.

Mumbai Indians won over KKR by 8 wickets and 87 balls.

Intriguingly, The record has been touched by David Warner and Jacques Kallis but is unbeaten yet.

 

Largest Victory Margin

Current Holder: Kolkata Knight Riders

This is another record that was born with the inception of IPL but still remains stringent. It’s not that it’s too tough (maybe it’s just a coincidence). In a race to chase KKR’s 223, Royal Challengers Bangalore collapsed at a little 82, flashing out a grand victory margin of 140. The fruitful ventures so far are by RCB when it clashed with PWI, where it was 130 and then follows Kings XI Punjab’s distance of 111 runs from RCB.

 

Most extras in an inning

Current holder: Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR have reserved a record of having given largest extras, the figure being 28. At the Eden Gardens, KKR bowled Deccan Chargers out for 110. Succeeding that, there were total 28 runs in extra for the chasing KKR team. The squad which follows the list is RCB who conceded 27 extras against Kings XI Punjab.

 

Best Bowling Figure

Current holder: Sohail Tanvir Sohail-Tanvir-Balling-750x617

The Pakistani had displayed a pretty 6/14 in 2008 playing the Rajasthan Royals, bowling against the Chennai Super Kings. This is one of the wildest figures and this performance of Tanvir’s is still celebrated for this. A lesser acclaimed figure was given by Anil Kumble that was 5/5.
